Energy Crisis

Dear Editor:

Nikita Khrushchev promised to bury us; little did he know that given a little time, and with the help of the environmental nuts, we would bury ourselves. The energy crisis has reached the point of shutting us down and reducing our great country to a third-world nation. One need not search for signs of the dwindling influence we once exercised around the world.

The prices of all commodities are as high as the international space station, and the dollar is almost as low as Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Arab oil sheiks and their cohorts are taking the world to the cleaners. Using petrodollars, they are buying up everything they can lay their oily hands on. They are bent on bleeding us until we are dry and shriveled.

The solution to the energy dilemma is at hand, but none are as blind as those who refuse to see. From what I hear and read, I understand that we have enough crude oil to drown all the oil sheiks of the Middle East and the other petty dictators

around the world.

Until we find a better source of energy, we must overrule those who hinder the efforts to tap our vast oil deposits that are so numerous. We have the technology to do that efficiently and safely. This is a matter of national survival.

If it is not out there already, every effort must be made to find a renewable source of energy. I would not be surprised if such a source already exists but is being suppressed by those who grow rich while the world is in this energy mess.

As soon as an alternative source of energy is found, or sooner, we ought to organize a wheat cartel and set a price of $140.00 a bushel for wheat and give the oil-rich and soil-poor sheikdoms the choice to drink their oil or pay the price for wheat and other commodities. Thus we can buy back America and bring prosperity back to the land we love and cherish.

JOSEPH CEDER
